Las noticias como son...

Here, I want to share a Radio Marti interview (click on "MP3" to the right) from the daily show, "Las noticias como son," that took place on Tuesday afternoon, March 22, a day after the broadcast of the latest chapter in the Cuban government's "Razones de Cuba" series - "Ciberguerra" (Part I / Part II) and following the release on that same day of "Razones Ciudadanas" at Generacion Y. 

The interview, which lasts about 22 minutes, includes a Q & A with nearly all those present in the "Razones Ciudadanas" video beginning with the lay-Catholic leader and activist Dagoberto Valdes, lawyer Wilfredo Vallin, and the cyber-activist duo Reinaldo Escobar and Yoani Sanchez.  El Yuma adds his two cents live from Nueva York and a clip of the blogger Elaine Diaz Rodriguez from the government's "Ciberguerra" video is also played during the show.  A summary of the interview in English is available here.

From left to right, Yoani Sánchez, Dimas Castellanos, Reinaldo Escobar, Wilfredo Vallín, Miriam Celaya, and Dagoberto Valdés.

(Disclaimer: I'm told that an obscure US law makes it illegal to broadcast Voice of America and Radio Marti shows within the boundaries of the United States.  So if you actually listen to the MP3 clip above, make sure you do so from some undiscovered country or while floating out in el territorio libre del ciberespacio).
